The thyroid gland is small, but rather complex. The hormones and other chemicals produced in this gland need to be in balance for functional health. An overactive thyroid gland can cause a number of concerns, including thyroid eye disease (a complication of Grave’s disease). When abnormal function in the thyroid gland affects the eyes, […]
According to the annual report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 209,000 blepharoplasties were performed last year. This eyelid-rejuvenating procedure has ranked in the top five cosmetic surgeries for the past several years. Seeing that a simple eyelid lift can refresh the entire face, it’s hard to find a reason to […]
Blepharoplasty has quickly become one of the most sought-after cosmetic procedures. It’s easy to see why. Correcting age-related laxity in the eyelids has a way of brightening the entire face. The results of blepharoplasty are indefinite, meaning that the eyes never go back to how they were before surgery but will continue to age […]
Body contouring is one of the most active areas of aesthetic medicine. Even before the development of non-surgical modalities like CoolSculpting, it was popular to refine body shape with liposuction and abdominoplasty. In our Denver office, body contouring is frequently performed to help patients naturally reduce body fat in areas of concern.
CoolSculpting may be […]

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons annual report has revealed that more than 125,000 patients underwent facelift surgery last year. Of those, 15% of patients were men.
We are proud to […]
Usually, BOTOX® goes hand-in-hand with temporary wrinkle reduction. As this injectable solution has become more familiar thanks to advanced studies, we have come to realize that Botox can also correct cosmetic concerns such as a drooping brow line. It has also been used as a remedy for excessive underarm sweating. Now, we can add […]
Daylight savings time means more sunlight, which means more time to get out and enjoy the beautiful outdoors. The closer we inch toward summer, the greater our desire will be to shed layers of clothing that have served us well these past several months. If you’re like a lot of us, your winter-body has […]
Eyelid sagging and drooping can be a frustrating problem. Too much skin on the upper eyelid creates a heaviness that just doesn’t belong. People with heavy upper eyelids are often perceived as unfriendly. They may be asked if they are tired, or if they are angry. This is no way to go through the […]
